The job of an artist is to concentrate on shape, pattern, texture, color and value; the abstract nature of reflections makes this easier. Many times, when I work from a photograph, I will turn the photograph upside down and paint the image upside down to see the elements of art rather than the image. Reflections are upside down images too; so I feel very comfortable painting the abstract reflections in water.
